“...if a healthy dose of surreal outrageousness is the cure for what ails you, then the blitz of absurdity being prescribed by the Axis Theatre Company may be just what the doctor ordered...using cutting-edge performance technology, director Randy Sharp, Axis co-founder and co-artistic director (and original music provider, to boot) served up a slick, compact, and even production that fairly synthesized the state-of-the-art stage, lighting, and sound (the latter two thanks to the talents of David Zeffren and Steve Fontaine, respectively) that the space boasts, while being complimented by the eerily effective performances of actors who seemed to be reveling in the afterbirth of this "gutsy" is due to this rather bold company and distinctive mission and the vision and talent to make it happen.”
